Martorell, 24/2/2014. The new SEAT Leon has been distinguished with the “Best Car 2014” award in the compact car segment by the editorial staff of the trade press magazine Coche Actual, which belongs to the Motorpress Ibérica editorial group. This prestigious award recognises the quality, design, sportiness and technology displayed by the Spanish company’s new model.

SEAT Spain director Mikel Palomera received the award this afternoon at an event held in Madrid, where he pointed out that “this prize is an enormous satisfaction for the SEAT family due to its significance within the sector. The new Leon perfectly represents SEAT’s values and we are pleased that Coche Actual has distinguished our model from the field of worthy competitors in the current compact segment”.


It is especially significant that the Leon has been chosen best compact car by the editorial staff of Coche Actual as they are highly qualified trade specialists who have closely analysed the most prominent cars this segment currently has on the market. For this reason, the “Best Car 2014” award is duly relevant when you consider that the philosophy behind Coche Actual is to provide their readers with the guidelines that give a better understanding of cars in an informative and practical language.

This is clearly another success for the Leon, which is continuously winning awards in Spain. SEAT’s new model has conquered a leading position within its segment, thanks to an enticing lineup that has recently been expanded with the arrival of the CUPRA version, the sportiest in the range, which is available with a power output of 265 and 280 PS and a three or five-door body style.
